Collinsville-based Viviano Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is a 2018 Business Sponsor for the community-driven organization, Neighbors in Need.
The collaboration helps host annual fund-raising events where 100 percent of proceeds go directly to local families in need of support.
Neighbors in Need seeks business partners to help offset costs for events they host each year.
“Because of the financial assistance that Neighbors in Need provides, families with a child battling cancer or other types of adversity are able to focus a little less on the bills flowing in and more on the family matters,” said Don Viviano, owner of Viviano Heating and Air Conditioning. “The array of assistance and needs vary, but the purpose remains the same: taking care of the people in your community.”
The most well-recognized event each year includes the Taste of Edwardsville, happening Saturday, April 7. Tickets for the event sell out almost as soon as they are available. The event includes food from a large variety of neighborhood restaurants and a silent auction. Ticket sales and earnings from the auction all go towards the Neighbors in Need initiative.
Another event, the annual Turkey Trot 5K, will be held on Nov. 22, 2018.
Business sponsors are sought throughout the year. Visit https://edwardsvilleneighborsinneed.org/.
